#WinifredWednesday - Makeup for the Indie Bride

OK, we admit it - we're constantly pinning hair and makeup inspiration over on our Pinterest board.  Sure, we love a bride's dress (especially when it's Winifred Bean), but we really love seeing a bride fully styled - hair, makeup, accessories, the shoes... What we adore about the Indie bride is her willingness to take a risk or two.  Think fun shoes, an ethereal dress, or a flower crown.  But when it comes to her makeup, pretty, soft and natural are the key words.  

The Indie bride might slide a little gold shadow over her lids for a gilded effect, or opt for pretty purple to reflect her bouquet.  She may emphasize her pout with a little bordeaux lipstick, or choose barely-there nude for a natural but gorgeous effect.  The options are endless, but we've managed to round up five of our all-time favorite makeup looks for the Indie bride.  Let the inspiration pinning continue!

#WinifredWednesday - Shoes for the Indie Bride's Woodland Wedding

I am continuously inspired by lovely brides on their wedding day.  Sometimes, a single image is enough to get the wheels in my brain turning for days - wedding style, venue, details from the day - I draw on all of these elements when designing my dresses and accessories.    

This week, I'm struck by the carefree style of this Indie bride's woodland wedding.  The bride, the backdrop, the flowers - it's all so pretty without being overdone.  Just natural, and very real.  Exactly the way it should be on your wedding day.

I got to thinking as I studied this bride's look - I wonder what shoes she's hiding under that dress?  So I pulled a few (or 9) of my favorites.  I wonder which she'd like the most.
